dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by live. but first cnn's poppy harlow breaks down the numbers. >> hi there, wolf. i think the headline for this jobs report is disappointing. only 80,000 jobs created in the month of june. unemployment stays at 8.2%. we need to be creating somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 jobs a month pretty consistently to bring that rate down. issues here 12.7 million americans still unemployed in this country. 5.4 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer. the longer you're out of work, the longer it takes you to find a job. that is a problem. also very key here. 2.5 million people are not counted in this unemployment rate at all. they can work, but they have stopped looking for work. so they're not counted in the unemployment rate. so it's actually higher than 8.2%. also very key here is minorities. we have to look at what has happened to african-americans. their unemployment rate has gone up for the month of may. it's now nearly 14.5%. it is pretty much double unemployment for whites, hispanics, 11% unemployment. that's

has had little effect on the latest cnn poll of polls which shows the race nearly deadlocked. but another poll from usa today and gallup could be more worrisome for romney. it shows a majority of americans want to see more of the gop contender's tax returns. something mrs. romney told abc is not happening. >> you just want to give more material for more attack. that's just the answer. and we've given all people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life. >> reporter: meanwhile, romney may be getting a lifeline from all people -- former house speaker nans si pelosi said earlier today that too much time in this campaign has been spent on the tax return issue. meanwhile, over in the senate john mccain tells cnn's piers morgan, his team found nothing in the tax returns that would have disqualified romney in his own vice presidential search four years ago. wolf. >> so i take it this notion that we had earlier in the week that a vice presidential running mate could be selected before he heads off to london for the olympic games and then

he misspoke in that conference call. let's bring in our cnn chief political analyst gloria borger in "the situation room" as well. the ad we just saw in dan's piece, part of a broader picture that the obama administration, the obama campaign is trying to project. >> as you know this is the summer when it's time to define your opponent. it's not rocket science here, wolf. what the obama campaign is trying to do is paint a very, very unflattering portrait of mitt romney. he is, according to the obama campaign, secretive, tax avoiding businessman who outsources jobs and cares nothing about the middle class. that is of course on top of his wealth. so it's a caricature but sometimes care ka churs can stick particularly when you're spending $25 million a month most of which is in negative advertising. so that can stick. and the problem for romney right now is that unless he releases his taxes or continues to -- or give some more information about his taxes or even bain, these questions will be raised. don't forget, wolf, you were there. these questions were raised by his republican oppo

. >> reporter: wolf, naacp leaders told cnn they praised mitt romney for showing what they called courage in coming to this convention today. but safe to say mitt romney did not hide his positions on issues that are dear to the civil rights group. and members of the naacp did not hide their feelings about mitt romney. >> honorable mitt romney this morning is our speaker. [ applause ] >> reporter: at first the applause for mitt romney at the naacp was polite. but that did not last long. when the gop contender pledged to get the national debt under control in part by repealing the president's health care law, the crowd let him have it. >> and so to do that i'm going to eliminate every non-essential expensive program i can find. that includes obama care. and i'm going to work to reform and save -- >> reporter: the boos lasted 15 seconds. the most sustained negative response romney has received in this campaign. the chair of the naacp's national board said members objected to romney's use of the term obama care, a buzz word coined by the critics. >> that was a loaded statement. and the crowd

insider trading, right? not exactly. cnn's dana bash and a producer have done some digging into the law. they discovered not just a lingering loophole but how it got there. >> reporter: this was memorable because it was so rare. president obama signing a bipartisan law congress passed swiftly and overwhelmingly. to make sure there's no insider trading in congress.s crowed about restoring trust in government. >> if there was any chance of fact of using information for personal profit, we were not going to allow it. >> closing loopholes to ensure that members of the congress play by the exact same rules as everyone else. >> reporter: but keeping them honest, cnn has learned that not all the loopholes were closed. here's why. the key to making sure lawmakers don't profit off secret information they learn on the job is based on a new rule. financial transactions over $1,000 must be reported in 45 days. >> so that the public could have more real-time understanding of what their members and what senior staff and other high government officials were doing with their finances. what kinds of tra
. >> reporter: but finally he gave cnn the news. >> the supreme court is the final word, right? the highest court in the land? they said it was a tax, didn't they? so it's a tax. that's what they say it is. >> reporter: the main reason the already cautious romney was especially careful here is because the gop message on the mandate is already muddled. earlier this week a top romney advisor said the candidate did not think the insurance mandate is a tax but rather a penalty. what democrats call it. >> the governor believes what we put in place in massachusetts was a penalty. and he disagrees with the court's ruling that the mandate was a tax. >> reporter: that enfuruated republicans in washington for imposing what they call the biggest tax in american history. democrats here shadowing romney's event didn't miss a beat. >> i think people see the president as being a strong leader standing up for his principles and moving forward. we'll let mitt romney argue with himself. >> reporter: romney's news came during a brief bit of independence day action in an otherwise quiet week with his family at

last month over allegations he misled the court about his finances. cnn's david matingly is in florida. the judge set bail at $1 million but still has strong words for him. what's the latest? >> reporter: well, the cost to zimmerman may go far beyond the $100,000 cash in collateral he has to put up to make that bond. there is a tremendous loss to his credibility throughout this entire process. the judge having some very strong words for him in the ruling. and they run like this saying that george zimmerman flaunted the system, tried to manipulate the system and had no justification for his deception when he tried to tell the court that he didn't have any money and didn't have any means to live when in fact he had $100,000 in donated cash and a passport on him. the judge also went on -- and this was a real surprise, that george zimmerman he believed was preparing to flee to avoid prosecution but plans were thwarted. the judge doesn't go into detail about how those plans were or how they came undone, but they believe george zimmerman was a flight risk. now we see him with a $1 million bo

was crushed. she is expected to recover from her injuries. cnn's poppy harlow is live in aurora right now. this had to be very emotional overnight. >> reporter: it was incredibly emotional. it was also uplifting, john. i've been here since friday covering this tragedy. yesterday was different. the vigil was different than anything else. thousands turned out. they have, i think for a lot of people begun the healing process. we saw heart shaped balloons released into the air. candles being lit. the family members were present there on the stage. they did not speak, interestingly. that was left to representatives of the government and also different pastors who gave prayers for the people. we didn't hear from family members. what stood out to sme is something that steve hogan said. he said the pain is still raw but reclaim our city in kindness and compassion. that makes you think of the process of forgiveness. how does that begin here? i talked to different people at this vigil last night about just that. >> forgiveness isn't always only for the person that you're forgiving, that committed t
